In 2017, FreshFood, the owner and operator of the Bushells Coffee Factory at 160 Burwood Road, Concord, announced a long-term plan to close the existing Factory, which is coming to the end of its commercial life.
Originally situated around a thriving industrial precinct along the Parramatta River, the factory is now the last remaining large-scale industrial facility in the area and is surrounded by residential development.
The closure of the site over the long-term means there is an opportunity to transform an aged industrial facility into a new residential precinct that is more appropriate for the area and the surrounding community.
FreshFood has owned and operated the Bushells Factory site for the past 18 years following the acquisition of the business and its brands. It currently produces many of Australia’s leading brands including The House of Robert Timms, Bushells Coffee, Picco, Café-Bar and Europa.
